PHOENIX Minuteman founder Chris Simcox announced his bid for U.S. Senate against John McCain Wednesday, blaming the senator for deaths caused from violence on the Mexican border and promising a national campaign to unseat the four-term incumbent.
We have the ability to run a national campaign as well as a state campaign, Simcox said outside the Arizona state Capitol. There are millions of supporters around the country who have been waiting for some leadership in Washington to take on this border security issue.
Simcox who as president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps has toured the country blamed McCain Wednesday for being soft on immigration.
He is fully responsible for the deaths along our borders, the raging violence in Mexico and the violence that we have in the streets of U.S. cities from border to border coast to coast, Simcox said.

He and other Republicans and Democrats who supported the invasion of our Nation are responsible for all the economic, environmental and social destruction that has come with it. Maybe now that the violence and death has esclated with the drug lords, the voters will finally boot Traitor McCain.
The invasion is another gift of destruction given to the American people by Wall Street special interests.
Link doesn’t work.
MaggieCarta would prefer a Conservative. So would I.
MaggieCarta prefers Mitt Romney. If you think Mitt is a “Conservative” you need to get help.
You know, you should ping people when you talk about them.
It should be.
You don’t think it’s a bit silly to ping five other Freepers for “backup”, only to “admonish” me to ping everytime I mention another Freeper?
I don’t know much about Simcox other than than his affiliation with the Minutemen. I am excited to see what appears to be a conservative primary challenger for McCain. All that said, while the border issue is very important, Simcox still needs to make sure he’s not a ‘one note samba’. There are other issues Senators are expected to be aware of and have thoughts on. He also needs to guard against the MSM defining him as a ‘one note samba’ as they will surely try to do.
Why would it be silly?
You talked about MaggieCarta, so I pinged MaggieCarta.
You also mentioned Mitt Romney, so I pinged Mitt Romney.
And, since your reply was to roamer_1, I sent roamer_1 a copy too.
As for calcowgirl and indylindy, I thought they might be amused by your lack of situational awareness with regard to Freeper etiquette. Irrespective, those two had already been pinged to this thread earlier for reasons unrelated to our interactions here and thus would likely have stumbled upon these posts at some point or another.
only to admonish me to ping everytime I mention another Freeper?
Pinging other Freepers you talk about is considered good manners.
Because it's petty and you know it.
Etiquette? Great. Pettiness... not so much.
BTW Mitt Romney is a Freeper?
Nah... it was to laugh at ya, I think. ;-)
Hope you enjoyed it. Poor kind of humor.
No more bureaucrats!
If we're going to have a government by the People, of the People and for the People, we need to make sure that those are the kinds of People that get in office.
Yes, yes, I most certainly would.
All I'm saying here is that I think that someone has to step up to the plate and take on Zero. I applaud Gov Romney's efforts in this regard.
Sheesh -- lighten up and get a sense of humor!
He also needs to guard against the MSM defining him as a one note samba as they will surely try to do.
Are you ready with the op-research for Simcox? It’s time for them to get the BEST OF THE MCCAIN TRUTH FILE!
